With a turnout of more than 90 people and the

second highest total raised in its fi ve year history,

little wonder Northern Sentinel publisher Louisa

Genzale describes the annual auction to raise

money for the animal shelter “a huge success”.

The auction is a dual effort by the Sentinel

and the Kitimat Community Humane Society

with all the money raised going to caring for the

animals, not capital costs such as building maintenance

and the like.

And the November 12 event at the Hirsch

Creek Golf and Winter club raised $9,886.55.

Genzale emphasized that success was due to

the behind the scenes work of numerous volunteers

including shelter manager Maryann Baumbach,

the Humane Society board members, current

Northern Sentinel employees who did a lot of

the preparation work and volunteered on the night

and former Sentinel employees Monica Pettet and

Sandra Dugdale – Sandra also emceed the event.

Genzale said special mention had to go to

Yvonne Lee who not only put in many hours preparing

for the event, but also donated a lot of gift

baskets to help the cause.

As for auction night, “We tried something new

this year to liven things up and Ron

Burnett did a live auction for three

large items, a 51 inch screen TV, a

barbecue and Hawkair tickets,” she

explained.

(The rest of the more than 200

donated items went through a silent

auction.)

Referring to both those who donated

the items and those who bid on

them, Genzale added, “They really

came through.”
